  • The Elegance Quartet played a major role in making my daughter’s wedding elegant and musical! They played beautifully and sensitively at the welcome time, the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the dinner, knowing when to pick it up, be romantic, or entertain my granddaughter with Frozen songs. They were punctual and set up in various areas of the wedding venue as needed. And Ray, the musical director, was great to work with--always responsive to my emails, helpful in song choices, and perfect in playing our choices on cue.

  • I arranged to have The Elegance String Quartet perform at my daughters wedding in July 2019. The Music Director Ray Bicolli and his team personified excellence and professionalism the entire time! The music set was a beautiful rendition of classical morphed into rock and them R & B. It was amazing!!! Then I had the honor of having the Quartet accompany me and the Tabernacle Baptist Church Minister in the song "The Prayer." Our guest were in awe and mentioned to us throughout the entire ceremony and reception how beautiful the music was. I can't wait until my next affair. I will definitely have the Elegance String Quartet again!

    Thanks again Tony for reviewing us on Wedding Wire, as well! Your daughter's wedding was really special and I'll never forget accompanying you in that beautiful rendition of The Prayer. Looking forward to the video!

  • My wedding was this past Saturday night at the Arts Ballroom in Center City Philadelphia. For the past few months, I worked with Ray Bicolli. He was amazing! So responsive, consultative and easy to coordinate with. We hired a cello player from his group to perform with the piano from our band. I didn't have to worry about anything and Ray made me feel super at ease. Richard on the cello was incredible and I was very impressed. Thank you Ray for making this process so easy!

  • We hired Elegance Quartet to play during our ceremony and our cocktail hour for our wedding. Our guests are still raving about how amazing they were! Throughout the entire process, they were very professional, responded to emails quickly, and guided us when we were ready to set up our ceremony. Hire them now!! I wish I hired them to stay and play all night; you don't even need a DJ or a band!! Elegance is an amazing choice to make your wedding absolutely perfect!

  • We hired the Elegance String Quartet for an outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in August. The ceremony was classical with acoustic instruments, cocktail hour was contemporary with electric instruments. So much fun! They made the whole event come to life... putting on a show and taking requests on the spot. They did an absolute perfect job. Highly recommended!

  • I would highly recommend hiring the Elegance String Quartet for your wedding. They are incredibly talented and the music was beautiful! They suggested that during the cocktail hour they play more “hits” than traditional, classical music and it was a huge success! The guests loved it! During the planning process, Ray was extremely responsive and helpful. It even rained DURING our ceremony and we had to rush inside when it started to pour and they played a nice song in the rain (under a small tent) for us to “recess” out of the garden and inside the venue! While on our honeymoon, Ray sent me an e-mail saying he noticed that we did not have a videographer so he set up his go pro on the tent and filmed the ceremony for us! How sweet! This is just one example of how they will go above and beyond to make sure your day is special. They are truly an exceptional group and definitely worth it if you are considering hiring a string quartet. Definitely go with Ray and Elegance String Quart... Read more

  • Elegance String Quartet performed for my daughter's wedding ceremony at The Ballroom and the Ben in Philadelphia and also for their cocktail hour. Working with Ray was a pleasure, he and the team accommodated all our requests and made sure the event was exactly what the bride and groom wanted. The music was BEAUTIFUL and could not have been more perfect! The volume of their playlist was enormous and gave the bride and groom so many options. My daughter even requested an alternate song with some specific timing for when she walked down the aisle and Ray made sure that happened for her. Thank you so much Elegance! We hope to hear you play again sometime soon!

  • I am so happy that I booked Elegance String Quartet for my outdoor wedding in June. Everyone I spoke with from the company was pleasant, accommodating and warm. Ray Boccelli in particular worked with me to choose the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. This was kind of a daunting task since Elegance String Quartet has a huge selection of music to choose from. However, he made it very easy for me to narrow it down to create a beautiful set list. He even did some research to play a song that wasn’t included in their set list and played it during our recessional. Everyone at my wedding commented on the music and how it added such harmony to the day. I recommend choosing Elegance String Quartet for any upcoming event.

  • We hired Elegance String Quartet for our recent wedding at Morris Arboretum. Ray was very responsive via email and phone. The music was absolutely beautiful during the ceremony. We were particularly happy because they were able to play some of our favorite, less conventional, wedding songs. They were happy to play Jurassic Park for the recessional and it was delightful.

    Hi Ellen, It was a pleasure working with you and performing for your special day. Thank you so much for the review and for selecting some fun pieces for us to play! :)

  • We hired Elegance String Quartet to play our ceremony music as well as our cocktail hour, and we are so glad we did!! They showed such professionalism throughout the planning process in regards to song selection and responsiveness. As the wedding approached, they did a great job of explaining what to expect. We also rented a microphone from them for our officiant and my husband which worked perfectly and sounded great. The timing and renditions of all the songs we had chosen were perfect. It’s very clear that they know what they are doing and was easy to feel confident in their abilities to make everything sound great. They were even willing to learn a new song for us as “a gift”!! We were really so impressed with everything, and if you are looking for ceremony or cocktail hour music, Elegance is a great choice! You won’t be disappointed.

    Thank you so much Fie! We'll never forget your awesome entrance! It was a real pleasure working with you and playing for your guests, thank you for making us part of your special day.

  • I hired Elegance String Quartet for my engagement in April and I could not be more thankful for this talented group of individuals. They went above and beyond to bring my vision to life. I wanted to have a combination of Bollywood, Disney-themed, Classics & POP songs throughout the event. I worked with Ray Bicolli (Music Director) throughout the entire process and he was nothing short of amazing. Although they had never played Bollywood songs before, The entire team learned all the songs I had asked for and executed it FLAWLESSLY. The best part was when Ray told me that they would be able to play the remixed version of Game of Thrones song that I had shared with him for my entrance! I still get the chills every time I watch the video. It truly made my day. Our guests and family members still can’t stop talking about how amazing the entertainment was throughout the event and all the credit goes to Elegance! They were so accommodating and I would recommend them to any... Read more

  • Elegance Quartet was amazing! Their timing for our processional was perfect. During our cocktail hour, they played upbeat songs to keep the mood light and everyone seemed to enjoy their rendition of Sweet Child of Mine. Elegance Quartet was also very flexible, they worked with us to play music that was not in their catalog.

  • Since I was a teenage girl, I have dreamed about my wedding day. I would have a ballgown, beautiful florals everywhere, a handsome husband to walk down the aisle to and beautiful string music. I'm so happy to say all of this came true on our wedding day - especially the strings. We booked the string trio from Elegance, and they made our planning easy from the start. Ray was very helpful with helping us choose songs and pick which songs to put where in the ceremony, and they played beautifully. We had many compliments on them, and people loved the fact that we used live music rather than recorded. It added such a romantic touch, and walking down the aisle felt how I always imagined it would. If you are on the fence about booking Elegance for live music, don't hesitate any longer!

    A beautiful review from a beautiful couple :) Thank you Amanda and Rob! It was our pleasure to turn your vision into live music!
